Ryse Hydrogen boss Jo Bamford has welcomed the news that the Scottish Government has renewed its pledges to support the hydrogen industry, in addition to the creation of Green Business Champions.

In a response to a report from its Advisory Group on Economic Recovery, the Scottish Government has recommitted to publishing its Hydrogen Policy Statement and action plan ‘later this year’. It also said that it expects to see hydrogen projects come forward from its Energy Transition Fund initiative.

Mr Bamford, who earlier this year announced his vision to deliver 3,000 state-of-the-art hydrogen powered buses across the UK by 2024, said:

“The Scottish Government has shown strong, global-leadership on hydrogen, and it is great to see the renewal of this commitment and ambition in its response to the Advisory Group on the Economic Recovery report.

“Without doubt, taking steps to unlock Scotland’s hydrogen economy will create new jobs today and many more over future years.

“Later this year Wrightbus will introduce a fleet of world-first hydrogen double decker buses in Aberdeen, and Ryse Hydrogen have plans to build green hydrogen production facilities in Aberdeen and Glasgow. It is essential that strong partnerships exist between the the Government, local authorities and business to unlock investments like these, so we also welcome the Scottish Government’s plans to establish ‘Green Business Champions’.”

Ryse Hydrogen has already pledged to work with the Scottish Government and local authorities to make Aberdeen a world leader in hydrogen with the creation of a hydrogen hub.
